A convoy of cars carrying Israeli diplomats through Jordan was attacked by a roadside bomb (or perhaps a Molotov cocktail) Thursday evening, local time. No one was injured, and the Israeli ambassador was not present (and is reported safe). The diplomats were traveling from the capital city of Amman to Israel via the Allenby Bridge. They were able to continue after the attack, and have since arrived in Jerusalem. More as more information comes in.
